So, I have been tossing this idea around for a while and it just came back to me. With the con less than a month away, I should really get it going if I wanted to have it happen. So, here's my idea: I know that a lot of people on here enjoy the art/hobby of making AMVs, and I know that almost nobody makes AMVs for the sole purpose of not having them seen by others. That's where my idea comes in.
I was thinking of hosting an unofficial AMV show in my hotel room at some point during the con weekend. There would be no screening, there would be no judging or anything of the sort. If you made an AMV and want it to be seen, all you have to do is get it to me and it will be seen. We'll probably have a laptop or dvd player which we will hook up to the tv in the room, and we'll just have AMVs playing throughout the duration (whenever the time is that we settle on).
The way it would work is you get your AMV to me, and I archive it. Pretty simple. I'd say the best way for you to get the AMVs to me would be burned to a disc and mailed to me, so as not to lose any quality with posting and downloading or anything like that. If anyone has a better idea or suggestion, though, I'm open and listening.
This is in no way, shape, or form an attempt to step on the toes of those in charge of the official AMV Contest and shows at Kumoricon; that's why this is unofficial. This is nothing more than people displaying their own AMVs for others to see. I don't see a problem with that, so I figure it could work fine and be an enjoyable time for all involved. Right? ^_^
So, does anyone like this idea? If I get enough responses to make it worthwhile, I'll start solidifying details and I will keep editing this initial post with details and information for AMV submitting. So yes, let's enjoy some AMV's!
